It gives us great pleasure to say that OrderWise are the recipient of this year’s Training Excellence award, which was presented at the 2015 Lincolnshire Media Business Awards ceremony.
The Lincolnshire Media Business Awards is an annual awards ceremony, celebrating the best achievements by businesses from across Lincolnshire. This year saw over 100 applicants try and make the shortlist in a number of award categories, including Innovation, Food and Farming Excellence, Business Person of the Year, Business of the Year and more.
Having had a truly hallmark year, OrderWise were able to fight off some tough competition in order to make it on to the shortlist for two awards – the Training Excellence award and the Medium Business of the Year award.
The Lincolnshire Media Business Awards ceremony was held in Lincoln on the 20th October, with 12 awards in total up for grabs on the night. It was a great evening, with OrderWise runners up after only just missing out on the Medium Business of the Year award and scooping the prize for Training Excellence. The judges commended OrderWise on all aspects of our training, particularly impressed with the full mock warehouse training facility available at our premises that enables both staff and customers to experience and learn about OrderWise in a real-world warehouse environment. “New versions of their software are released every month. So, training is vital if staff are to understand their real-world application, the problems businesses are facing and how the new features will assist them” the judge’s citation said.
The judges were also impressed with the opportunities available to our staff and how quickly we are able to get them trained on OrderWise in order for them to successfully serve our customers. “Crucially, OrderWise recognises it takes a new starter six months to be fully competent in their new role” they said. “And it’s remarkable that many of their key members of staff originally started as apprentices”.
Collecting the award on OrderWise’s behalf was Managing Director David Hallam (pictured far right), who was absolutely over the moon to receive the award. “I can see what we do works, but to be recognised for this from the outside is a very good feeling indeed” he said in his acceptance speech.
The Training Excellence award is now proudly on display at OrderWise HQ and it is safe to say everyone here is immensely proud of this great achievement. A huge well done goes out to all other winners and runners up at this year’s Lincolnshire Media Business Awards and we at OrderWise look forward to hopefully being lucky enough to win more awards again in the future.
